A few months ago my husband and I were watching late night TV when we heard Miss Corinne Bailey Rae sing.
This woman can sing! Her voice is incredible. We caught her again on PBS and downloaded a couple of her songs from i tunes. Just for fun we checked out her concert schedule, but all her shows were in Europe.
Just by chance my husband found out that she was going to tour here in America but we hadn't seen it advertised. She was actually going to open for John Legend (who was advertised, but whom I had never even heard of before, 'cuz I'm not really hip to current music). Not only that, but the first night of the tour was going to be very near our home!
By the time we found out about it, the concert was already SOLD OUT. (aww)
But we found tickets on e-bay (yea!)
and they were outrageously expensive (awww).
But then he actually won an auction for a reasonable bid (yea!)
and he also kept checking back at Ticket Master just to see if anything else opened up.
AND THEN . . . .
on the day of the concert, he found FRONT ROW SEATS for the same price and was able to sell our other tickets to someone else less than two hours before the show!!! (WAHOOOOO!)
So tonight I sat mere feet away from two amazing performers and had a great time celebrating my anniversary.
later, off to the left, in the open seats next to the stage, I noticed Miss Corinne watching Mr. Legend perform and I waved my hands excitedly--not really thinking she would notice me, but
she smiled right at me and WAVED BACK!
I am starstruck.
